Erin Lee Creative March Release

Hello, friends.  I am waving to you from a responsible social distance...I hope you are finding wonderful ways to use this forced family fun time.  One of the best things about being home is having more crafty time than usual, and when you have brand new stamps from Erin Lee Creative, it's sure to be a good time!

I hope you've joined this hop from Lynnea's blog.  Three random winners who comment across all of the blogs will receive a $25 gift code to use in the ELC shop.  Winners will be announced March 25 on the ELC blog, so be sure to comment!

These brand new stamps and dies put a modern twist on some classic designs.  Today I am using the Houndstooth Background stamp along with the Congratulations and Happy Birthday dies.  Love the font on these!

First up is the classic black and white houndstooth with a pop of red.  I die cut a rectangle out of the middle for the sentiment and added just a peek of red behind the card front.  I think this makes a great masculine card.

Erin Lee Creative January Release

Hello everyone!  Welcome to the Erin Lee Creative January release.  When I received these products I sat down immediately and started to play.  There are such fun new stamps, dies and stencils.  I'm sure you'll find something you like.

We are hopping today (see list below) to show off these great new products.  If you've come from Lindsay Dickason's blog, you're in the right place!

There will be two (2) $25 gift certificate winners chosen from the comments on our blogs, so comment away!  Winners will be posted on the Erin Lee Creative Blog on Saturday, February 1.

First up:  Stained Glass Stencil

I used some pearly embossing paste with this stencil, and as you can see, the results are nice and crisp.  I popped up the "hello" (Big Hello Love Die) on some foam for more dimension, and the card is complete.  With a great background like that, a simple word die will finish it without competing.

Next up we have two products: Leopard Background and Let's Mak…

This stamp is called Never Regret Being Kind. (Keep hopping, and you'll see more!)

One of the things I love most about this hobby is that it is inherently kind.  So what could be better than a stamp that encourages even more kindness?  Such a great sentiment!

This stamp is easy to use as the focal point of a easy, in fact, that I made 4 right out of the gate!  Each one uses a different technique--this stamp is so versatile.

For my first, I heat embossed the sentiment in white on steel grey cardstock.  I then colored over the embossing with my Copics for a multicolored effect…
